There's only one saturation level opener next week and that film, Max Payne, is this week's target film. In order to win, one must simply predict the opening weekend box office of Max Payne.
Whoever comes the closest to predicting the film's opening 3-day weekend box office (Friday to Sunday), without going over, will win Mother or Tears on DVD, Feast II - Sloppy Seconds on DVD, and Alvin and the Chipmunks - Alvin's Thanksgiving Celebration on DVD.
Meanwhile, whoever comes the closest to predicting the film's opening 3-day weekend box office (Friday to Sunday), without going under, will win Inside the Actor's Studio with Robin Williams on DVD, as well as Alvin and the Chipmunks - Alvin's Thanksgiving Celebration on DVD.
Finally, one additional entrant will be chosen at random to win Yo Gabba Gabba! - The Dancey Dance Bunch on DVD, as well as Alvin and the Chipmunks - Alvin's Thanksgiving Celebration on DVD.
Entries must be received by 10 a.m., Pacific Time on Friday to be eligible, so don't delay!

Aaaahhhhhh! POP! ... That sound you just heard was my head exploding. This week we had a new record for spotlight reviews, and with TV on DVD kicking into high gear and summer blockbusters starting to come out soon, I don't think it will slow down. (Additionally, I have close to a dozen DVDs that arrived late, and I was only able to get to less than half of them for this week. So look for another huge batch next week.) As for the quality releases, there were a few that caught my eye, but none more than The Godfather Trilogy on Blu-ray. Sure, it doesn't push the high definition format, but this is the best these films have looked in decades and any film buff will want to have them in their collection. Meanwhile, last week's release of Duckman - Season One and Two also deserves to be awarded the DVD Pick of the Week. While there are not as many releases this week as last, there are so many spotlight reviews that the list had to be split into to. Part II can be found here.

Sorry, wrong Khan. Mongol, which is a movie about Genghis Khan, opened in first place on the per theater chart with an average of $27,065 in five theaters, which gives it plenty of room to grow. The overall number one film, Kung Fu Panda, placed second with $14,642. Next up was the second place film on the overall box office charts, You Don't Mess With the Zohan, which made an average of $11,130 in each of its nearly 3500 theaters. The final film to cross the $10,000 mark was The Grocer's Son with $10,587 in its lone theater.

The Promotion was touted at the possibly this summer's sleeper hit. But with reviews that are barely over 50% positive, it's not likely that that will happen. Perhaps Mongol or And When Did You Last See Your Father? will have better luck this weekend.
